alright. i did windows update like 4 weeks ago and ever since it's been fucked up. whenever i click on an offsite link anywhere on the internet, my internet explorer freezes. i can't click on any of the pics in forums here because it freezes. actually, it just stops responding, not freezing. so anyone know what may be the prob or where a good place to go for help would be?

go to www.mozilla.org and download firefox, first of all. internet explorer ruins computers. second, get some sort of virus scan and run that, then get an adware and spyware scanner and run that. then your problems should be fixed.
it has nothing to do with a virus... trust me im still on SP1 and its because SP2 does the same thing, crashes my computer. its a hardware/software conflict and it for some reason doesnt like SP2.
if your on win XP you can do a system restore and go back before you got the updates. start, programs, accessories, system tools, restore

AOL is an ISP which uses their own proprietary browser. IE, Netscape, and Firefox (Mozilla) are browsers. An ISP offers ability to connect to the net, where as a browser assumes you are accessing the net via some other means. IE is Microsoft proprietary code, Netscape uses different code completely and arguably much more secure than IE. Netscape also at least used to be open source (meaning anyone could modify the code to tweak the browser to their liking). Firefox is Mozilla's browser, which is open source based on Netscape code to offer the security/stability/scalability of Netscape, with the look and feel and ease of use of IE without IE's limitations and or weaknesses (inherant in basically all Microsoft products).
I couldn't tell you how to get rid of limewire, not being a Mac user, but you should be able to without loosing any music, just move the music files, and if you are still concerned move them to a periferal (sp) and remove limewire, then put em back on your machine.
